DENVER (AP) – Ryan Frazier says he’s confident he’ll secure his spot on the Colorado Republican Party’s U.S. Senate primary.
The Aurora businessman welcomed a Tuesday ruling by the state Supreme Court that decreased the number of voter signatures he still needs to qualify for the June 28 primary.
The court also ordered a district judge to decide by Friday if another 51 signatures should be accepted. If they are, he’ll qualify.
Frazier challenged a finding by Secretary of State Wayne Williams that he didn’t collect enough signatures in the 3rd Congressional District to qualify.
Frazier’s name is on the ballot pending the appeal.
Frazier was campaigning in southern Colorado Tuesday. He said the dispute hasn’t slowed his fight to emerge from the primary as the GOP challenger to Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet.
